The Chicago Bears
pulled the big upset Thursday afternoon by acquiring Denver Broncos
quarterback Jay Cutler, a source told ESPN.com. The Broncos confirmed the move.
To acquire Cutler, the Bears had to give up quarterback Kyle Orton and first-round
picks in 2009 and 2010, a source said. To complete the trade, the Broncos
had to give back an undisclosed draft choice in a later round. The Bears
beat out the Redskins, Buccaneers, Lions, Titans and other teams to get land
the 25-year-old Pro Bowl quarterback.
I don't even know what to say... I can't believe Jerry Angelo of all people had the stones to pull this off. We gave up a ton and I could care less. We finally have a legitimate franchise quarterback.
